Has anyone else been receiving phone calls from Optum demanding to speak to their therapists directly in regards to doing peer to peer reviews on their clients?
The phone calls have been taking approx 30 mins each for our therapists and the person calling is asking about clinical information for how we are providing therapy to our clients; all of which would be in our documentation. When asked why they don't just ask for our documentation, they are told that it isn't about that and that it is more of a peer to peer thing. Once the person that is calling gets all of the information about the case, they then review it with their team and call us back with their recommendations. Basically informing us how to provide treatment to our clients. Doesn't seem like a very good use of our therapists time and we haven't had anything like this in the past, so just wondering if others are receiving these as well.
